I'm not sure about this... modal dialog (as specified in
window.showModalDialog()) is pretty horrible. Is there a single mobile
browser that implements it? For that matter, does any webkit browser
truly implement window.showModalDialog() as modal? Chrome definitely

In any case my personal opinion is that window.showModalDialog() is
not a correct answer to any sane question. I'm happy to be proven
wrong though, so feel free to expand if you have a real use case.

Personally I'd rather see support for HTML5 DialogElement
a cleaner implementation of the same idea. I have a recollection that
there's at least some experimental code in webkit.
